A study just released in the journal Nature Climate Change that states the Persian Gulf will be too hot for humans by the year 2100 and maybe sooner. The report says the change could happen in as little as 10 years, not 80, and that should be alarming to most people. They go on to say that anyone without air conditioning, especially the elderly and the young, could die with as little as 6 hours of unprotected exposure to the heat and humidity.

It turns out that the humidity in the Gulf is the main reason for concern because it keeps the human body from naturally cooling itself. That makes the body gradually overheat, causing the body to shut down. The ironic thing is climate change is being caused by fossil fuels, which the people of the Gulf are dependent on for their economy.
